Arch looks to bolster transparency of cru Guernsey cells

Arch Financial Products has announced that it plans disclose the “significant holdings” for each of cru Guernsey cells in its monthly reports going forwards.

The decision comes on the back of calls for greater transparency from investors, with Arch also confirming that each of the Guernsey companies is also in the process of setting up a website to “aid in the dissemination of information about the company.”

Arch says the funds do comply with all the regulation surrounding Non-Ucits retail schemes, such as daily publication of net-asset value.

The group has however warned that too much disclosure could hinder the investment objectives.

“For example, if we are lending at a high interest rate to borrowers who could get a better rate around the corner, it would hurt the fund if such borrowers were approached by other lenders.”


People on the move: Investment

FourWinds Capital Management, the alternative investment manager, has appointed of Lydia Whyatt as managing director in the environment group. Prior to joining the firm, Whyatt spent four years as managing director at Foursome Investments. In her new role, she will focus on deal execution and implementation and will be based in the London office.

Stop the secretisation

I was impressed by the comments from Michael White of Email Mortgages regarding the destruction of advised choice by lenders.
